METKA, a Greek engineering and contracting firm, has won a $165 million (192 billion Iraqi dinars) contract to work on the Shatt Al Basra Power Plant.
The contract allows for the company to oversee the process of making the plant fit to burn heavy fuel oil for electrical generation.
The project will be executed over the next year for the Ministry of Electricity.
METKA is already installing a 1,250MW gas-powered turbine in Basra on a separate contract.
